Tony Tanner’s Charlatan

A lush, sexy and painful revealing expose of the life of the 20th century’s greatest impresario, Sergei Diaghilev. Revel in an orgy of life, loves, art and personal and professional loss voiced by the master himself. Celebrate the centenary of Ballets Russes’ storming of Paris with this tour de force that US Fringe critics called ‘the best of the genre’. Tanner returns to Edinburgh after four decades of American theatre success. The greatest dancer of all time went insane. Was it because he spurned his lover, the great Diaghilev, for a pretty bauble?
